Sprint 39 - November 15, 2013


Remember the 15th of November, when the Avalon team completed over 50 points in a single sprint? This sprint finally got us moving towards new features for Avalon 3.0. A big priority is master file management; we were able to make some big strides in making sure the system can move, leave in place, or delete master files. Our next sprint will focus on making Avalon aware of where files and derivatives are being stored.  


Another successfully completed story was the first pass at uploading previously transcoded files. Web uploads and batches now have an option to skip transcoding! We still need to go back to allow skip transcoding for items uploaded in the Avalon dropbox.  


Beyond those new features, we cleaned up the media player, especially on iPhones and iPads. It is looking pretty slick! We've added nice big buttons for touch screens.
